The Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) invites models to apply to be a part of this year’s CIAF Fashion Performance Woven. The annual Fashion Performance—now celebrating its 10th anniversary—has become a leading platform celebrating and promoting Indigenous fashion, haute couture and wearable art.

The CIAF Fashion Performance Woven brings together contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander cultures, fine art and high-end fashion, in presenting visual storytelling through the platform of a catwalk experience. Models are encouraged to apply to participate in showing the designs of designers via the Performances, a professional photoshoot and a pre-show, mentoring experience, working closely with Lynelle Flinders (curator) and Hans Ahwang (choreographer).

Applications are open for Queensland Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander models and emerging models. EOIs close Monday 24 April, close of business.
